M 17 Omega Nebula, © NASA / HubbleHope is one of the three theological virtues in Christian tradition (Faith, Hope and Love or Charity).

13And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love. -1 Corinthians 13:13
Hope being a combination of the desire for something and expectation of receiving it, the virtue is hoping for Divine union and thus eternal happiness. Like all virtues, it arises from the will, not the passions.

  • Christian Hope comes from God
  • Directed toward God
  • Directed toward Christ
